I mean, very unlikely that a 16 year old or whatever would be actually interested in this sort of thing, but I bet if yoh did one of your poetry workshops or similar with them, they would like it.

and tune in to their special vibration

hither, at a pip, and down lulled Dolby. Bride of
hewn hillside, spat bauxite and dally.
Earth tumbled, cute pebble, egg split
anguished.
Quick lizard, hot wall,
all paint peeling. Steam.
How we, in extremis,
a-go-go. And so delicate, held to
tenuous and ephemeral. Sob.
Breath-harbour, blow, and
on outward.

Dawn


I thought I was weak because I could barely handle the strain
Until I realized no one carried a burden as heavy as mine.
I thought I was a coward because I was afraid
Until I realized I stood my ground alone where others had armies.

I thought I was small because others stood over me
Until I realized I was big enough not to become them.
I thought I was timid because I didn't risk my life
Until I realized I had the courage to live where others gave up.

I thought I wasn't a man because I cried
Until I realized real men have reasons to cry.
I thought I wasn't human because I was an outcast
Until I realized that humanity comes from within.

I thought I had lost hope because it had been stolen
Until I realized hope is a choice, not a wish.
I thought I had lost faith because no god is this cruel
Until I realized I believed in myself.

there;s always this rancid quality, oh, you people, you dont understand, how could you

Can you see the wonder
I sometimes doubt you can
From the smallest to the largest
It shines so bright to see
Yet blindly you walk on by

clematis entirely severed towards
what threatened. Ecstatic
horror, dawning. Tremendous
flash here, gasp
to foreknowledge, flown
right into
pastry.

At ease, in dusk garden
twittering grasses.
Concubine. An allowed
breath, lacquered.
Watched, implacable
and the high walls
too high
to dream of it.

Boudoir. Pink Regent, colossus-
velvet, blooming, in profusion.
Her arch tinkling, in the room of glass,
bodies in tandem, turning
marble, and the
scrupulous foot-measures
and the air with such
limpid
each sound is
so precisely
articulated here,
without vehemence.
By necessity.

Falls like morning dew. Shudders
with instinctive disdain, and the grey
body stiffens to reject the emanation.
Hurtle, like morning, struck down.
Fine-woven cloud and the memory
of music sweeter than sound. Carapace
crosses the frequency boundary
that blurs green to purple.
Meadow imagined here,
beetle
and brusquely cancelled.


****************************

A Fool's privilege, fantastic these
fruit trees in orderly grid package
all the previous enticements were
foregone, with rueful though stoic
but this, this jettison of all ballast
and the subsequent menthol air
ice cool whistling between teeth
proves simply irresistible. I will
take it. Where do I sign? O!
adorable impatience! Red
mittens!

No, no, you misunderstand
that is not how it is being
deployed at all. Or at least,
not
quite. Our Angel Delight
flounces through Modern
Industry, banishing all that
is Difficult & Complex. Put
Down The Gun. And a cloud
of butterflies balloons
from the exhaust pipe. Torture
is just the proper understanding
of your own actions. Face pressed
to your own mess. You won't
do that again?

Foam too, in violent agitation
our gourmand, interrupted. To
peel back the scales, each
oiling the light. Our task is
print the spine. Angry
as a dog at the fence.
Ableist litigant

and a sudden interjection.
Hurried paraphrase
and the plate
crashes on the tiles.

Look, it is imperative that we explode
and dainty in the weeds, your corrolary
returning. Sent spinning on that
strict axis. Foot planted
Here. Now
pivot
and into pastoral. Profuse
clover, and buttercups,
plait grasses.

Angel
Delight, eye-lashes,
and the telegraphed wink.
So the Events occur
not one after the other.
But metamorphic.

They're all focussed on control and modulation of the line and sound patterning. They're all knowingly, archly mincing. And these are the qualities I am referring to as Angel Delight
